Some people put items which they want to keep safe at the graves of righteous people, thinking that they will guard them, so that they will not be stolen or take
Praise be to Allaah.
Believing that the dead can guard items that are placed
at their tombs is blatant kufr and shirk, associating others with Allaah
in His Lordship (Ruboobiyyah). Whoever dies believing this deserves
to spend eternity in Hell. Placing items that one wants to keep safe
and other things at tombs to be guarded or to receive barakah (blessings)
– all of these actions are not permitted at all. And Allaah knows best.
And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah bless
our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions, and grant them peace.
